"The Old Manse" on Millisle Road is part of the historical fabric of this picturesque seaside town, dating back to the early 1900s. The charming Victorian elevation with twin single storey bay windows is entered through an impressive fluted entrance, to reveal a stunning interior sympathetically restored to it's elegant past, combined with contemporary and tasteful presentation. The accommodation is bright and spacious, with many period features throughout the four reception and five bedrooms.
The property occupies a generous site and on entering the double gates to the side, you are transformed into another serene world of stone walled gardens and expanse of lawns, which benefit from a sunny aspect. There is also a range of outbuilding/stores.
Conveniently situated within easy walking distance of the town centre, seafront and much portrayed harbour with lighthouse, the area offers a variety of social and recreational facilities, yet remains within thirty minutes drive from Belfast. Schooling is facilitated by bus routes to all major towns in North Down and further afield.
This is a beautiful period home and one of the landmark residences in the town.
